March 13, 2018, Prescott-
One’s breaks in life do not come without knowledge, volition and action on the part of the individual. I have always believed this, deep down, even when outwardly, I was casting about for people to blame for misfortune, during the dark days of 1999-2011.
Penny and I stumbled a lot then, largely due to her disease being uncharted territory. This widowhood thing has also been uncharted territory, yet several good things have come out of it: I have had to wrestle my demons, totally alone, which makes the little victories that much sweeter; my friendships, with women and men alike, are that much more realistic; my inner discipline has been recharged and fine-tuned.
Breaks in this life don’t come from belief in unicorns, though the horned equines are a nice fantasy. I am, these days, carefully positioning myself, so as to successfully complete my working career by May, 2021, and then expand my exploration of the world. To do that, I recognize that the day isn’t getting any longer and proper attention to health is huge. So, I went through an orientation at Cornerstone Chiropractic and began a series of 48 adjustments. This is a prime example of why I opened a Health Savings Account, when I went back to full-time. Things unscheduled happen to young and old, but are simply more de rigeur, on this side of the seesaw.
I will continue to make, for myself, the luck I need. Whatever my spirit guides offer, on top of that, is pure gravy.
